The Mothers’ Union.

The Mothers’ Union is St Wilfrid’s newest society being formed as recently as 2006. We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month in the Church and, as we only have 29 members (24 women and 5 men), everyone’s welcome.

Our meetings consist of a short service, a talk or discussion (on many and various subjects) and finish with a time for socializing to end. Any volunteers or suggestions for our talks are always welcome.

The Branch contact is . Contact Liz on 01302 530706 for any information.

THE AIM of the Mothers’ Union is the advancement of Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and family life and is achieved by following our aims and objects.

  1. To uphold Christ’s teaching on the nature of marriage and to promote its wider understanding.
  2. To encourage parents to bring up their children in the faith and life of the Church.
  3. To maintain a world-wide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service.
  4. To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children.
  5. To help those whose family life has met with adversity.

THE PURPOSE of the Mothers’ Union is to be especially concerned with all that strengthens and preserves marriage and Christian family life.

Wednesday Morning Coffee Group

Our Coffee Group was started in October 2000 and has been running continuously ever since. Every Wednesday Morning from 10 am to 11.30 am two members of the Group run the Coffee Morning for everyone to join in.

In the Church they provide a welcome with, for a small charge, tea or coffee and scones, cakes and sometimes sausage rolls. Small cakes and pastries are also On Sale.

In this small way we have been able to provide help with the funds greatly needed to keep our church beautiful for future generations.

The Group organizer is Margaret Brailsford.

The Flower Club

The Flower Club is responsible for all the floral displays throughout the church and we always make a special effort for important dates in the church calendar.

The Group organizer is Barbara Sands who will be only too happy to tell anyone (or everyone!) about our "in memory" flower scheme.
